MICHELLE Taylor has been appointed to Colin Biggers & Paisley’s Transport and Logistics group and its Brisbane Insurance team.
The appointment is to strengthen the firm’s insurance practice, as Ms Taylor has more than 20 years’ experience in maritime and insurance law practice.
She has been recognised in Chambers Asia Pacific as a “Leading Lawyer in Shipping” since 2013 for her comprehensive knowledge of marine casualties.
Colin Biggers & Paisley Transport and Logistics partner Andrew Tulloch said Ms Taylor’s appointment is the latest addition to the Brisbane team, which has grown over the past six months.
“We work hard to attract outstanding talent and Michelle will be a very significant addition to our already impressive transport and insurance practice,” he said.
Ms Taylor said she was looking forward to joining the practice.
“I am delighted to be joining the Colin Biggers & Paisley team and working with its strong, internationally recognised teams in both the transport sector and in insurance,” she said.
Ms Taylor’s appointment follows the appointment of partner Vijay Edwards, as well as the promotions of Stuart Unwin to Special Counsel and Patrick Cavanagh to Senior Associate in the Brisbane insurance team.
